SAE International Symposium Examines the Application and Economics of Composites in Mobility Industries

WARRENDALE, Pa., April 24, 2014 -

SAE International’s 2014 Design, Manufacturing and Economics of Composites Symposium” will bring together experts and influencers from High-Performance Composite organizations to address the economics of composites, as well as the practical application of manufacturing composites from the aerospace, automotive, commercial vehicle, wind energy, and sport equipment manufacturing industries.

 

The event will be held June 10-11 at NH Parque Avenidas in Madrid, Spain

 

As today’s mobility industry faces economic challenges that may prevent composites from being used on a mass scale, composites still remain on the leading edge of material development. The symposium is relevant for engineers working across all mobility industries, including aerospace, automotive, commercial vehicle, marine, wind energy, and sport equipment manufacturing industries.

 

Topics of discussion and technical sessions will include:

 

·         Composites Lamination

·         Energy Impact on Aeronautical Parts

·         Engineering Software

·         Graphite Composite Use

·         High Volume Applications in Sports Equipment

·         Prototyping Aerospace-Grade Composite Parts

·         Repurposing Carbon Fiber

·         Theromoplastic Composites
